In September, Carpintarias de São Lázaro became partner of OperaFest Lisboa’s 1st edition - the new Opera Festival in town - that took place between MNAA’s gardens and Carpintarias, from August 21 to September 11.
From great opera classics to Vanguardism opera, embracing all audiences in varied formats OPERAFEST LISBOA is born in a particular difficult year, but with all heart and soul to bring the emotion of opera to everyone!
With the moto “The worst, the better”, evoking opera’s tragic essence, the lauching of OperaFest is done under the unifying theme of betrayal and deceive, as tragedy instigators.
The game of life and its constant dialectic between trust and its breake, reaches through opera the level of utopy of singing the fascinating and tragic complexity of human being!
Welcome to OPERAFEST LISBOA, Welcome to the tragic world of opera!
